Open Days

Spon St

Open Days for 2021:

At the moment, we only have one open day planned, we are hoping to do more after this trial:

Saturday 10 July, from 10am until 4pm, free admission

The Weaver’s House Garden and selected areas of the house will be open.

Full details and FAQs (please read so you know what to expect from us, and what we expect from visitors):

The Weaver’s House will be open for limited amounts of visitors. We will have demonstrations of the traditional craft of spinning and a display about the loom and weaving in the garden.

Visitors will be able to enter The Weaver’s House to view the two rooms on the ground floor, in small groups at a time. We will be running talks by our knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers in the garden area.

What additional measures are in place?

Visitors enter the house wearing a mask, this can be removed in the garden area.

All visitors sign in via the Track and Trace app or a paper alternative.

Hand gel is provided in the entrance area.

We will be limiting the number of people on site at one time.

A one-way system is in place where the nature of the site allows.

Talks will take place outside.

Do I need to book in advance?

No, it is drop in, however we will be limiting numbers on site.

Can I see the replica loom?

Unfortunately, it will not be possible to open the small upstairs ‘solar’ room containing the loom. It is simply too small to manage access and ventilation to accommodate visitors.

What facilities are open?

Toilets including accessible toilet will be open.

Cold drinks will be available, we are unable to provide other refreshments on this occasion. We are a short walk from the city centre.

We will be closing at 4pm , please bear this in mind.

Entry is free but donations are appreciated.
